Abstract
OF SPECIFIC INTEREST TO THE U.S. AIR FORCE IS THE SIMULATION OF FEW VERSUS FEW AIR-TO-AIR ENGAGEMENTS TO EVALUATE NEW DESIGNS FOR WEAPON SYSTEMS, AERODYNAMICS AND TACTICS. A DIGITAL MODEL WITH THIS CAPABILITY WOULD HAVE TO SATISFY THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE INDIVIDUAL AIR FORCE APPLICATIONS, INCLUDING CONFORMITY TO ESTABLISHED AND PROPOSED MULTIPLE MODEL SIMULATION FRAMEWORKS. THE TWO MOST STRONGLY SUPPORTED AIR-TO-AIR ENGAGEMENT MODELS ARE TAC BRAWLER AND THE AIR-TO-AIR SYSTEM PERFORMANCE EVALUATION MODEL (AASPEM). DUE TO SEGREGATION IN THE MODELING COMMUNITY, THERE IS INSUFFICIENT COMPARATIVE DATA ON WHICH TO BASE THE SELECTION OF THE MODEL MOST APPROPRIATE FOR THE TARGET APPLICATION. AMHERST SYSTEMS PROPOSES TO EVALUATE AND COMPARE TAC BRAWLER AND AASPEM AT ALL LEVELS OF USER INVOLVEMENT AND MODEL STRUCTURE, INCLUDING THEIR ASSOCIATED DATABASES. THE APPLICABILITY OF THESE MODELS TO SIMULATION FRAMEWORKS WILL ALSO BE EVALUATED. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL PRODUCE A COMPREHENSIVE DOCUMENT DESCRIBING THE EVALUATION AND COMPARISON RESULTS.
